Rosenberg Castle is a college-level history course you can take in two hours! Well, I'm slow. I took four hours. So much to see. Centuries of Danish history in one building. The castle is not used as such any longer, but has become a living...More

If you have some extra time, the Rosenborg Castle is worth a visit. Genuine rooms with wall and celing paintings, giving you a look into the history of kings and queens. Visit the park outside as well.

The castle was built in 1606 by Christian IV and was used by Danish regents as a royal residence until around 1710. After the reign of Frederik IV, Rosenborg was used as a royal residence only twice, and both these times were during emergencies. Once...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
